US & Canada Supply Operations Manager

Uber Overview

About Uber

We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

About the Team

At Uber, adding driver partners to our platform is one of that hardest problems in the company - and it's a problem that our team aims to help solve! One way we add drivers is with a dedicated concierge service to help answer questions and convince drivers that driving for Uber is the best choice. This is not easy - it takes collaborative leaders who can understand Uber's operations, adapt to our changing business, and help solve problems where no solution currently exists.
